Edinburgh Fringe


The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is a celebration of arts and culture, an exhilarating feast of diverse creativity, from the not-so-good to complete genius! The Fringe has grown from a handful of uninvited acts in 1947, to over 3000 performances in venues across Edinburgh. The Fringe's fundamental philosophy is to be an open access festival that welcomes anyone with a desire to perform and a venue prepared to host them. No single person or committee decides who is allowed or not allowed to play during the Fringe.
